Abstract

Understanding the properties of CdSTe ternary alloys is important because they always form at the interface between the CdS window layer and CdTe absorber layer in CdS/CdTe solar cells due to the intermixing. This interdiffusion is necessary because it improves the device performance. Experimental work has been devoted to studying Te rich p-type CdSxTe1−x alloys, but there is a lack of studies on S-rich n-type CdS1−yTey solid solutions. In this work, a review of the structure, morphology, and optical properties of the S-rich n-type CdS1−yTey thin films produced by the spray pyrolysis technique on glass substrates is presented.
